    Indonesian state firm Pertamina said it will solicit partners for developing 20 oil and gas blocks later this year. Speaking to a local press gathering, Pertamina E&P President Kun Kurnely said that his firm needs partners to explore 11 blocks, with additional firms required to help produce nine other blocks. The tracts are in Java, Sumatra and Kalimantan. He hoped to make the offer sometime this month. Ireland extends shelf Irish Minister for Communications, Marine & Natural Resources Noel Dempsey said that his country has secured a recommendation from the UN Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf to extend Ireland’s shelf limit beyond 200 nautical miles. The area in question concerns the Porcupine Abyssal Plain. According to Dempsey, the UN’s action now allows Ireland to add about 56,000 sq km to its continental shelf through legislative approval in its parliament.
